Consumer Reviews

This is a bestseller among multimedia watches. First, it has value. The average retail price is a little less than $100.  For this amount, you will never be caught without the basics in multimedia (assuming you don’t forget to wear your watch).

  • PRO: Can copy and play various audio and/video formats
  • CON: You can only use Bluetooth headsets. This is because there is no audio jack 3.55 or otherwise.
  • Con: The G13 needs 10 hours of charging time for the battery to reach full capacity.

Important Tips to Remember

Always read the manual before operating the watch. You will be surprised that most complaints regarding the G13 originate from the user not reading the manual. Also, this is primarily a watch phone with multimedia functions, not the other way around. Simply put, it was built to tell time and to make calls. Other multimedia features are merely secondary, so don’t expect the most responsive LCD or the best audio/video quality.

In Closing

Overall, this watch gets a score of 8 out of 10. Plus points were given for the functionalities it provides. Some points were deducted because of the 10-hour charge time, the cheap-looking rubber, and the lack of an external jack.
